Comparative Political Theory aims to become the premier academic journal dedicated to fostering dialogue among intellectual traditions from across the globe to address vexing social and political problems.
The academic discipline of political theory largely formed in English-speaking countries in the twentieth century. Political theorists such as John Rawls, Leo Strauss, Isaiah Berlin, and Hannah Arendt, as well as the main authors that they read, became the canon. Political theorists sometimes read authors from China, India, Russia, Mexico, Ghana, Turkey, and elsewhere, but the discipline has been Euro-American-centric.
This journal aims to address this imbalance. One way is to publish work on important authors, texts, arguments, schools, and traditions from around the world. A second way is to publish work that fosters conversations between social and political theorists within and outside of the West. In both cases, authors should explain how the work addresses pressing global problems.
Comparative Political Theory welcomes submissions from around the world that use diverse methodologies, that situate their arguments in different traditions, that can be more theoretical or more empirical, and so forth. The main objective is to shed new light on social and political affairs.
Comparative Political Theory welcomes the following types of submissions:
• Research articles (maximum of 9,000 words, though exceptions may be made);
• Review essays (maximum of 4,000 words);
• Single-book reviews (maximum of 2,000 words)
